  1. I wonder if your pimento cashew recipe came from Right Livelihood Pizza in Santa Cruz (defunct, was there in the early to mid-80’s) that used to be on Water St. right at the head of the outdoor “mall” downtown. That was the topping for their vegan pizza and it was delicious, although their recipe might have had agar in it because it had that kind of gelled texture to it.

    • The real inventor of this (I thought ) was frim the McDougal plan.. it goes on top of the spinach zucchini lasagna from a cook book from the early 1970 .. there is another version now too from the paleo diet that used basil .
      Anyone tried that one?
